I was curious if anyone views frugality as a spiritual value or something that your tradition or path demands?
I think mine does, implicitly. I don't really hear anyone using the word frugal, but the people walking my path value being green, value people over things and value creativity & personal empowerment (which sometimes takes the form of DIY). I don't know if "frugal" be a word that would resonate with other folks on my path. It certainly isn't a flashy, cool or sexy word. But it seems like a good word to describe some of the behaviors that come out of other values we share.
